    Hello everybody,

    we are a family with two kids (7 & 5 years old) living in the north of La Palma on an altitude of 1100 meters.
    In 2020 we found our beautiful old finca which we started to reactivate, rebuild and plant in order to create a lovely home again and a sustainable ecosystem within a food forest.

    The past 3 years we planted a lot and started setting up an infrastructure including a little stone house, a house made of red bricks and lime, a photovoltaic system, worm farms, a plant nursery, a tool shed, 3 chicken houses, a play ground and a lovely space for our volunteers.
    Around 20 chickens, 3 roosters and five goats are part of the family and also help us producing goods for our compost production.

    We are looking for motivated and positive volunteers who wanna help us bringing this former old and abandoned farm back to life, so that one day it will feed all the plants, animals and people living on it.

    If you are interested in learning about how to create a healthy and self sufficient home, we are happy to welcome you. (We are not selling any of our produce on markets or to shops, all the harvest we have, we consume ourselves.)

    For further information feel free to contact us.

    Thanks.

    Hola a todos,

    somos una familia con dos niños (7 y 5 años) que viven en el norte de La Palma en una altitud de 1100 metros.
    En 2020 encontramos nuestra hermosa finca antigua que empezamos a reactivar, reconstruir y plantar con el fin de crear un hogar encantador de nuevo y un ecosistema sostenible dentro de un gran bosque comestible.

    En los últimos 3 años hemos plantado mucho y hemos empezado a crear una infraestructura que incluye una casita hecha de piedras y cal, una casa hecha de ladrillos rojos y cal, un sistema fotovoltaico, granjas de lombrices, un vivero de plantas, un cobertizo para herramientas, 3 gallineros, un parque infantil y un espacio precioso para nuestros voluntarios.
    Alrededor de 40 gallinas y gallos y cinco cabras forman parte de la familia y también nos ayudan a producir materiales para nuestra producción de compost.

    Buscamos voluntarios motivados y positivos que quieran ayudarnos a devolver la vida a esta hermoso lugar.

    Para más información, no dude en ponerse en contacto con nosotros.

    Muchas gracias.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We used to have a farm for 7 years on the mainland of Europe which we renovated and rebuild ourselves. We planted and set up the whole place using Permaculture principles. Anything we have experienced and learned in those years as well as during the past three years on La Palma we are more than happy to share with you.

    Tuvimos una granja durante 7 años en el continente europeo que renovamos y reconstruimos nosotros mismos. Plantamos y establecimos todo el lugar utilizando los principios de Permacultura. Todo lo que hemos experimentado y aprendido en esos años, así como durante los últimos tres años en La Palma estamos más que felices de compartir con ustedes.

    We are looking for GARDENERS

    As we are still very busy with building, taking care of our animals and the trees and bushes, that we planted, we would very much appreciate to have a person living with us, that likes to grow annual vegetables. It takes a lot of time and feeling to have them growing here, so if you happen to have experience and it makes you happy running a garden, that feeds us, please get in touch with us.

    ARTISTS

    This place also is a place of ART, a place where art is not only welcome, but part of life.
    If you are interested in leaving a mark of your art on our walls, in our forest, where ever you see it happening, please get in touch with us, we'd appreciate it.


    CHILDCARE

    We are looking for a person or a family, that likes to do handicrafts like knitting, weaving, crocheting, knotting, pottery and all kinds of upcycling and DIY projects with our two sons. Preferably your mother tongue is English, Spanish or French.
